Heute war es soweit. Die Elektroversion des 1/8 Onroad-Fahrzeuges wurde vorgestellt. Der neue ARC R8.3E teilt dabei Teile vom R8.3. Mehr im weiteren Beitrag.
ARC R8.3E 1/8th On-road Electric Competition Car Kit
.Power source: 2S standard Lipo battery x 2pcs (not included)
.Recommend motor: 2800kV 1/8th brushless motor (not Included)
.All suspension and transmission parts shared with ARC R8.3 (nitro).
.5mm carbon fiber main chassis.
.7075-T6 aluminum bulkheads.
.3-belt transmission with a new internal ratio of 2.4.
.New light-weight bumper included.
- Main Chassis
The R8.3E comes with a 5mm carbon fiber chassis for reduced weight and excellent flex characteristics that delivers superior mechanical grip.
- 2. Transmission
The R8.3E transmission retains a 3-belt drive system through the center of the chassis. The belts and pulleys are the same specifications as the R8.3.
- Integrated Upper Deck
The integrated 3-piece upper deck connects the front bulkhead to the rear along with a fan mount for cooling the motor.
The upper deck design complements the main chassis to provide optimized flex, but at the same time, reduces the likelihood of the belt flipping over the pulley.
- New Internal Ratio
The new motor mount and a new internal ratio of 2.4, allow a wider gear ratio tuning window on the R8.3E from 4.75 to 5.85.
- Centralized Battery Position
Batteries sits either side of the drive system close to the centerline of the chassis to improve weight distribution and lower the rolling moment.
- 6.New Longer Rear Shocks
The R8.3E features new longer rear shocks that are 3mm longer than the previous model.
This allows the shocks to be moved closer to the centerline for improved handling characteristics.
Further improvements have been made to improve smoothness and sealing to deliver a more consistent rebound.
